I like it a lot, looks really clean! Usually I would say get a hardtop but yours looks good with the top down. I like the wheels for sure.

Thanks! Yeah I am not a huge fan of hardtops. They look awesome but I love being able to toss the top back whenever I want.

Love those wheels, too bad they're boat anchors iirc

That color is really nice too. Throw some boost on that thing.

Lol I know I know... Its in the plans.
I am just trying to decide what exactly I want to do with the thing.

Part of me wants to go standalone/bigger injectors and shoot for 275-300whp but another part of me just says get the FM Doodoo box. I just don't know yet.

Listen to the non-ricer part of you, for your own sake. Go the route of a man and get a standalone.

You car is REALLY clean, anything less than 230whp and a proper setup would just be a shame.

Good choice on the clutch. That's what I'll be getting whenever my MSM clutch lets up.

Sorry to ignore this forum (I don't have a Turbo yet so I don't frequent it)
Got new wheels last week, 15x8 Konig CE28 Flatouts with 205/50 Neogens. Love the set up


And my front lip flew off on the interstate last week, so thats a lost cause... ;(
Probably wont be getting another one unless I can get it for a steal, because that one lasted all of 3-4 months haha.

I will probably start posting more over here though. I am done making the car look the way I want it too, so now I am going to start the motor/turbo ****.
